Foodies love visiting McKinney! The city is home to many locally-owned eateries offering a wide range of culinary choices that are sure to satisfy your tastebuds. Great one-of-a-kind restaurants are sprinkled throughout the city, but you'll want to head to McKinney's Historic Downtown Square to find the largest number of choices in one place!
The downtown square is part of McKinney's Cultural Historic District and is home to almost two dozen highly-rated restaurants* all within walking distance of each other. Talk about a true "Foodie Mecca"!
To help you search for your favorites, McKinney has two food tour companies - Food Walks of Texas and We Ate Well Food Tours - that offer walking tours of the downtown. During these tours, you'll sample a variety of the culinary options available around the square.
The two groups have worked together so that their tours visit different sets of eateries. (That way, you can take tours with both of them to get an even wider sample of the offerings in McKinney.) They also can set up private tours for families, corporate teams, and friends getting together for a fun outing!
* Note: McKinney's downtown square is home to more than 100 businesses that include dining, shopping, and experiential opportunities including an escape room, a comedy club, a cigar room, and two wineries. When you come for a food tour, carve out enough time to hang around and explore, too!
